Tacos have sure come a long way since I was a kid, pretty much then… living on the East Coast, it was ground beef tacos when anyone mentioned a taco. No real authentic Mexican food to speak of. Fast forward to the current day and you can find good food with a little research.

Back then there were no taco shops, you couldn’t buy a taco anywhere I was aware of… now living in Southern California, there are taco shops everywhere and if they were smart, they’d start serving these for dessert!

I love that now there are so many resources in the stores to get Mexican Food Products! It makes planning way easier than having to go and find a Mexican Market, which I had to do years ago.

I’m not sure who thought putting cinnamon sugar on apples for apple pie and apple crisp or crumble…

but it was a genius idea and I always have a small shaker full of cinnamon sugar in my cabinet. I sprinkle it on toast, pancakes, muffins, and apples! If you don’t have such an item, just mix some cinnamon and sugar and find an empty salt shaker so you can have it ready anytime you you get a craving for that delicious duo. Believe me, you can come up with MANY items to put it on. Yeah, and vanilla ice cream is one of them…with cookies stuck into it….cinnamon sugar is not just for Snickerdoodles!

grilling apples

Gather all the ingredients (except for the ice cream) and head on out to the grill. I use a silicone brush to apply the oil so the apples don’t stick. I have the apples in cold water with the juice of 1/2 a lemon so they won’t turn brown.

grilled apples and tortillas

Grill both sides of the apples, then put on the tortillas they won’t take as long.

Now that everything is all grilled, it’s time to assemble the tacos. Head on back inside and get out the ice cream, cinnamon sugar, and caramel sauce.

Place a couple of apple slices in the tacos sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture and top them with ice cream, add more cinnamon sugar if you like and top with caramel sauce.

I’ll just mention you can NEVER have too much caramel sauce, so go ahead and drizzle it all over the plate and enjoy.

Now, these would be great any day, but really they give new meaning to TACO TUESDAY don’t you think!


Grilled Apple Cinnamon A la Mode Tacos


  • 4 Flour Tortillas
  • 2 apples cored and sliced into rings
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1-2 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce
  • oil as needed for grilling


  • Mix cinnamon and sugar together and place in shaker.
  • Grill sliced apples.
  • Brush on a little bit of oil, if they appear dry.
  • When apples are golden on both sides and have softened, grill tortillas for one 30 seconds each side.
  • Place apples in tortillas, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
  • Add teaspoon-sized scoops of vanilla ice cream on top of apples and drizzle with caramel sauce.


I soak the apples in cold water and the juice of 1/2 a lemon so they don't turn brown by the time I get to the grill.
Drizzle caramel sauce on plates also for a fun serving option. Stack layers of these flat and cut them like a pie/cake. Prepare apples ahead of time and just reheat them if needed for serving at a party.
